On this Veterans Day, we express gratitude to our Veterans and active duty service members serving our country. Many lives have been radically changed by the experience of war. Yoga is one of several healing modalities that has been shown to alleviate the effects of anxiety, depression,  PTS, and TBI as a consequence of war.

At SYF2014, in partnership with the Give Back Yoga Foundation , we are offering SYF Gives Back 2014 – Mindful Therapeutic Yoga Practices for Veterans, a 2-Day Pre-Conference training for yoga teachers. We choose to partner with the Give Back Yoga Foundation because of their dedication to making yoga available to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the transformational benefits of this powerful practice.

This training will provide participants with specific tools and practices developed through clinical experience working with Veterans coping with post-traumatic stress and other psycho-emotional stress. While benefiting trauma patients safely and comfortably, the training can be helpful for yoga teachers working with anyone dealing with stress and other psychological difficulties.

Together we have assembled a faculty of leading experts for this training, all who have been working continuously for years with Veterans in their recovery process. Participants are offered complimentary access to the Sedona Yoga Festival through Saturday and Sunday in gratitude for their willingness to expand yoga outreach to Veterans and active duty service members. CEUs are available through our Education Partner theSouthwest Institute of Healing Arts.

Deep gratitude today, and all days, to those who have and do respond to the call for service. Namaste…

SYF Partners with Give Back Yoga Foundation
We at Sedona Yoga Festival actively researched to select an organization to support through our 2nd AnnualSedona Yoga Festival, a consciousness evolution conference. We are deeply committed to supporting a program that benefits veterans through the practice of yoga. We were inspired to see what the Give Back Yoga Foundation is doing in supporting and funding certified yoga teachers in all traditions to offer the teachings of yoga in service to community.   We approached them with our intention to channel 1 of every 10 incoming festival dollars to a service-oriented yoga organization contained in a large scale seva project at each conference…
